"In the late 1960’s and early 70’s, the worlds ecoloby and environmentalism were unknown to the vast majority of the population.

Greenpeace: Our Story. "In 1971, motivated by their vision for a more green and peaceful world, a crew of twelve planned to set sail from Vancouver, British Columbia, in an old fishing boat. These activists believed a few individuals could make a difference. Their mission? To ‘bear witness’ to the US testing nuclear bombs off Amchitka island, Alaska, and prevent the test going ahead.

To raise money for the mission, Joni Mitchell, Phil Ochs and James Taylor played a benefit concert that 16,000 people attended at Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum. Heartened by the support, the crew decided to name the old fishing boat. When the words “Green Peace” didn’t fit onto buttons, they were simply merged: Green Peace became Greenpeace."
